I started a new project. It’s a 1977 Yamaha XS750 I picked up in Virginia for $120. It obviously doesn’t run, but the engine kicks over and the frame seems straight. My plan is to strip it down to the frame and build an entirely new bike in its place. I think the XS750 is… Read more »

Here’s a 1977 Suzuki GS550 for sale in Virginia. It’s got some upgraded parts, and it’s sort of cafed, but it’s half-assed at this point. The seller is asking $2,350 for this bike. If it runs really nice and is mechanically mint, I’d do $2,000 for this bike. The backend is jacked up looking. The… Read more »
Here’s a 1977 Honda CB550 for sale in Salem, Vermont. It’s been cafed and the seller is asking $3,500.
Here’s 1977 Yamaha RD400 for sale in Eureka, California. I think $2,750 is too high for a bike that’s half tore apart and the owner doesn’t know if everything is there. And if you’re up in northern California, pick up a tasty sack of weed.
This custom built ’77 Yamaha XS650 by MW Performance is sick. Obviously it looks badass with the unpainted aluminum and exposed welds. I love the gritty look on a cafe racer. But the performance upgrades are impressive too. The MW Performance crew dropped in a set of inverted fork tubes from a ’08 GSXR600 with… Read more »
I love this 1977 Yamaha XS650 on auction at eBay. It’s a great looking scrambler with a ton of great upgrades. The auction ends on Saturday evening. The reserve hasn’t yet been met, but there’s a buy it now price set to $5,000. If you get this for less $5,000 and you can pick it… Read more »
Check out this cafed 1977 Honda CB550 for sale in Seattle. It looks pretty cool and it sounds like it’s mechanically in good shape. The seller is asking $1,950 for it. That’s not over-priced based on what I can tell from the ad.
I love these old two-strokes, but this seller is fucking nuts. He or she basically has a frame, what might be a complete engine and a bunch of parts scattered across their garage floor. So where do they come up with asking $2,000? No idea. Realistically they have about $400 sitting there. No one is… Read more »
There’s no way in hell I would pay anything approaching the $3,300 this person is asking for this Yamaha RD400. It looks like a 1977. According to the seller the bike hasn’t been ridden since 1992. I for the life of me do not understand why people think that a bike that’s been rotting in… Read more »
Here’s a 1977 Honda CB550 for sale in Seattle. It looks pretty cool, but $3,000 is a bit off the mark for a price. It’s not fully custom. To get it done completely, would take another $1,000, so I’d say maybe $2,500 would be about right. It looks nice, it just isn’t $3,000 nice, not… Read more »
